Massachusetts Health Care Laws
Created by FindLaw's team of legal writers and editors | Last reviewed June 20, 2016
Health care law includes the regulation of Medicare and Medicaid, patient rights, the handling of confidential medical records, euthanasia, and several estate planning topics. Additionally, the federal Affordable Care Act has introduced a number of regulations that impact virtually all Americans. But much of our health care laws are enforced at the state level. In accordance with Massachusetts health care laws, euthanasia (or "mercy killing") isn't condoned, although an individual's legally binding durable power of attorney may indicate an unwillingness to be kept alive through artificial means.
